Education: 

  • High School -   Amador Valley High School
  • College -  Arizona State University
  • Credentials -  National University: Masters – National University: Masters in Education

 

Background:  After graduating from Arizona State with honors in Justice Studies and a minor in Sociology I moved to San Diego, CA where I worked at a law office for about two years. In 2005 I moved back to Pleasanton and began my credential program at National University while substituting in Pleasanton and San Ramon school districts. I completed my credential program in 2006 and received my masters in cross cultural teaching in the summer of 2007.  For the 2006-2007 school year I worked at Granada High School in Livermore, CA teaching U.S. History and Economics.

 

Teaching Philosophy:  I believe that all students have the ability to learn, they just need help cultivating that ability.  I want to make learning more enjoyable for students.  I feel that if I can make learning fun for them, they will be more eager to learn.  That will be their biggest asset as they go through life.

 

Educational Philosophy:  The future of education lies in a partnership between the community, parents, students, and educators.  It is our shared responsibility to prepare lifelong learners, who will become literate, self-disciplined, independent, creative, and confident individuals.  Education should build the foundations for integrity and positive attitude while empowering students to achieve academic success.  I look at every student as an individual, eager to gain knowledge and to be successful.
